When their pleas went unheeded, a group of civilians banded together to bring law and order to the remote farms and plantations, miles from the coastal jurisdictions of the colonial courts.But when the group of vigilantes turns from prosecuting the criminals and the outlaws to enforcing moral guidelines on civilian population, the people are once again left to the mercy of the marauding bandits.When the out-of-touch colonial government inadvertently makes matters worse, it is again up to the citizens of the backcountry to band together for their own protection.In this oft-forgotten saga in colonial history, we see the independent attitudes of the colonists begin to form in a way that will shape the future of a nation just a few short years later.
